Students who graduate from California community colleges on this linked webpage with an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) in Political Science will only need to complete 60 more semester units at Cal Maritime to receive a BA in Global Studies and Maritime Affairs. Other associate degrees at those same community colleges do not carry the same benefit with this major.
